Are these drops considered normal? They always happen around the ~30% mark and goes down 3 to 5% per drop, suddenly.

You may use Battery Calibrater. But it is not necessary that it will work, this may also be battery problem. I am facing the same problem since a week. My battery is a year old and now its battery life is reduced much.
Try your luck or google for more about calibrating battery.

Actually my battery life is good as ever, it just seems to be reading the gage wrong.

I have this problem too, and can't find solution. I think it has something to do with rooting the phone, because it happened for me since then

It would help if you guys state the ROM you use.

Stock 4.4.4 (I have the 1st gen LTE)
When the battery reaches around 60 ~ 55 % it's starting to update itself every ~5% so I can use my phone intensively for some time, and it will stuck on the same percentage or drop 1-2% and after a while it drops 5% instantly.

Another thing that happens to me is when the battery reaches 95% while charging it's jumping straight to 100% and after a few hours drains to 95% instantly.

This problem doesn't seem to affect battery life, just annoying. I just got 5.5h screen time yesterday.

Prior to 4.4.3 there was a serious bug related to the Battery Sensor. Some measurement quirks where introduced as a result of the fix included in 4.4.3 / 4.4.4. This is what you are seeing and why you are seeing it.

my LTE came with 4.4.3 so I don't think that's the problem, I never had the famous "drop" to 1% only the issues i described before.
Thanks anyway!

According to gsmarena Moto G LTE shipped with Android 4.4.2. The same behaviour occurs with non-LTE Moto G running 4.4.3 or newer - it seems likely that the fix applied there was also included in LTE's 4.4.3 / 4.4.4 firmware.
